i had this amazing idea when i woke up this morning that i would try to get some finger wave action to my hair.

it was a failed attempt because i was in a rush, so i opted to hiding the half disaster with a flower. and then i had to change outfits so that the flower could mesh well with the whole attire =)

the hurrrrr-do…



outfit deets:
levi’s high waisted denim. forever21 polka dotted top. shoes urbanoutfitters on clearance. forever21 flower.

fashionista vs stylista

Posted in Fashion by yoshi on May 28, 2009

so chico and i had a wonderful short conversation on being fashionable versus being stylish a few days ago…

my thing is. every one can be a fashionista (as long as you got the money or the proper hookups). but NOT everyone can be a stylista/stylish.

you ALL know what i’m talkin bout…

there are the girls/guys that sport high name brands from head to toe and call it a damn day. these are your fashionistas.

then there are your girls/guys that rock whatever the fuck they find lying around and STILL come out looking like a million bucks. these are your stylistas.

my problem with the fashionistas is – MOST OF THE TIME – they ain’t got NO fkn STYLE whatsoever! like, REALLY? you’re going to spend HOW MUCH MONEY on those chloe boots and then wear them with an ABSURD attire and think you deserve to be on the satorialist?

no thanks, pass. moving on.

but when i see people who can throw on a thrifted tee or EVEN something from forever21 and twist it so you say to yourself, DAMN, now why didn’t i think of wearing that tee as a skirt or that cardi as a scarf, or whatever whatever whatever. now THOSE people i give mad props to for using their creativity and spending less than their typical lunch money on the whole fit.

the key to being stylish is never having to think too much.

my favorite saying (and i quote myself lol):

being stylish means you can rummage through ANYONE’s closet and still put together an awesome outfit for yourself.

now THAT takes skill, NOT money.

i forgot what else i was going to say to further argue my point… so i’ll end it now before i continue to rample off topic.

check yo’self before you wreck yo’self.

for you misschico…
